Kaspersky Lab, threat management solutions company, announced a significant growth in sales in 2011. According to management, company revenues shot up 14% worldwide, reaching US$612 million.
“2011 has been extremely challenging for the entire IT security industry. Despite tackling an evergrowing array of complex new threats in difficult market conditions, Kaspersky Lab has successfully achieved significant sales growth. Our global team has worked really hard to develop many new innovative technologies and to implement them in our latest products. We are proud of the high regard that our work has received worldwide,” said Eugene Kaspersky, Kaspersky Lab Chairman and CEO.
Meeting these challenges, Kaspersky implemented organisational structure changes late last year. Management geared itself for faster decision making while maintaining company flexibility and innovation.
The company also recently announced its’ intention to remain private to keep up efficiency and flexibility in the global market. Concentrating on differentation via technological innovation and growth, Kaspersky will continue their localised sales approach.
Setting up strategic relationships with global brands such as Samsung, Sony, Ferrari and others shows their success. Their biggest release was Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 designed for personal computer protection.
Their latest product, Kaspersky ONE (available locally soon), brings comprehensive protection for several personal devices. With an one-licence approach it is easy to protect PCs, laptops, smartphones, Macs and tablets.
The praise was not unfounded as Kaspersky’s products was acknowledged by a series of wins and high-scoring performance in several comparative tests by various independent researchers. To top it all off, Kaspersky won Product of the Year based on tests run throughout the year as the only security provider to get top marks in all of 2011’s key tests.
Kaspersky Endpoint Security 8 for Windows and Kaspersky Internet Security 2012 were awarded VB100 certification after being tested alongside 60 similar security solutions in Virus Bulletin’s independent comparative review. Both achieved perfect results in the three different certification tests. The same pair also beat the competition in complex testing by independent IT security institute AV-Test.org.
